COVID-19 VACCINATION

Due to the huge task of vaccinating so many people nationwide, the vaccine is going to be delivered in various ways, by mass vaccination hubs, smaller hubs and some GP Surgeries. We are working with 27 other practices and the Suffolk GP Federation to deliver the vaccination programme via a mass vaccination hub.  

When you are invited you will receive a text from NHS-Noreply or a letter with a unique booking code and web link. 

All Patients will be invited for their vaccine when they are eligible.  Please be patient, you will be contacted when you are eligible.

  

Information is available on the government website

(https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/covid-19-vaccination-why-you-are-being-asked-to-wait/why-you-have-to-wait-for-your-covid-19-vaccine)

We understand your anxiety but would like to assure you that as soon as is possible, you will be contacted and invited for your vaccination.

Suffolk and North East Essex System have launched a Covid-19 Vaccine website which gives a range of information about the vaccination roll out, links to local networks and organisations and a detailed set of FAQs.  There is also information about the vaccination centres and sites across Suffolk and North East Essex with local case studies and sites, including maps highlighting their location.  SNEE NHS COVID-19 Vaccination Service (sneevaccine.org.uk)
